    I just had an amazing time here. I booked originally only two days and ended up staying for more than one week. There is an amazing pool with a good vibe and good beers. You find a nice chill area and you can have fun at the bar. Happy to come back. Hasta la vista amigos.

    Never wanted to leave this place. Such an awesome hostel, Tommy has really done such a good job at making a home for anyone who comes. It's definitely the kind of place you would come back to. I miss pancho and vivo everyday.

    Incredibly nice owner, the pool is wonderful, great location. The only bad thing was the owners dog. It's a really big dog that barks at you when coming or going. If you're not a dog person, this hostel isn't for you.

    Honestly, vivo was such a magical place to stay. I was travelling alone and whenever I do I get nervous about meeting people no matter what, but this spot was so easy. The owner is often present and so kind, drove some of into town to have the best tacos. Every night there’s always an activity they write on their calendar events board. It’s just such a cool spot. The pool is awesome, the staff are sweet the dog and cat are adorable. You will enjoy your time here. I’ll already be back next year.

    We had a very enjoyable time at the hostel! The vibe was very relaxed and the people we met were lovely!! The staff were lively and always got involved with all of the fun events. There were a lot of really cool things to do and explore nearby. I would recommend this hostel but it wasn’t always the cleanest, with the swimming pool even turning a few swimming costumes and a girls hair green haha
